1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear gold to amber pour with a 2 finger, creamy white head. Somewhat sweet and toasty malt in the nose along with some grassy, lighty floral hops. Flavor is cereal, toast, bread... then some nasty vegetal and off, boozy (fusel maybe) notes come in. Light body, dry feel and light, fairly sharp carbonation and a lingering feeling on the palate, sort of an odd, boozy, spicy sweetness that I associate with fusel alcohol, but it seems to last forever. Too bad, the aroma showed at least a sliver of promise, but it tastes like cheap malt liquor after a couple drinks permeate my taste buds.

I was hoping for a little more from this beer. Really light with a faint aroma and flavor. It might be a bit out of season and the more robust beers it was with made this one look weak.

Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has a lot of toffee and biscuit malt. The flavor is toffee, caramel and biscuit. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden pour with ring of white head. I get ample sweet corn and graininess in this one. Surprising amount of earthy bitterness, though not much hop flavor, for a decent balance to the grainy sweetness. A small amount of butteryness also. Not something I feel the need to have again, but it wasn’t horrible. And I’d probably pick this over budlight.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of Mora2000) Pours a clear yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of biscuit, butterscotch, and honey. Flavor of biscuit, honey, straw, light sulfur, and grass.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Smells like corn and pilsner malt. Tastes like disappointment. Wait, how can it disappoint when my expectations are nearly zero? Sweet, bland, bad. What's next?

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance has a slight hazy yellow gold color supporting a dissipating head leaving nill lace. Smell is light with sweet grainy aromatics. Taste for a slight second has that genuine pilsner taste that dissipates quickly into a budweiser having a bit more graininess and sweetness. Mouthfeel is light medium with a good spike of carbonation.

At bobs. Grainy buttery nose. Clear dark gold. Interesting adjunct taste not enough hop for a pils. Okay.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle picked up in some random store in San Fransisco and brought back to the UK to review at leasure. Poured into a ’Back Forty’ Beer Co straight sided glass on 3 May 2013.
Regular lager look: golden, clear and clean, white head.
The aroma was semi-sweet floral and fruity: a lot more aromatic than most pilsner/lager beers.
The taste was also semi-sweet with a fruity feel within the flavours. I like sweeter brews and this was fine for me.
If this beer had a non-Budweiser label its scores would be a lot higher: it deserves to be appreciated more.
Well done Bud: one of your best beers that I’ve had anyway.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a bit hazy, dark golden appearance with a foamy, khaki head. Fairly sweet, a bit fruity, Angel Food cake, bready aroma. A bit floral and just a touch bitter hoppy, but overall pretty well balanced despite a bit sweetness. Slightly fruity, light pineapple flavor. Sure, I could probably get WBW on this.
